Perhaps this session is rolling back changes. There were a couple of views you could check. Actually it wouldn't be the session but the PMON rolling back the tx.

Subject: Killed session
Oracle 22.214.171.124 on Solaris 9
In one of my production database session was long running. Session was killed last night. Since then session is marked as KILLED in v$session. This killed session is holding locks on few tables and causing further problems.
USED_UBLK in v$transaction is constant at 287 since late last night.
I identified unix process and killed at os level two hours ago, still session would not go away. (os process is gone already)
What else should I be looking at? How do I get rid of KILLED session?
I do not have luxury to recycle database.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
